Olympic Casino invested over LTL 10 million in new projects in Vilnius and Panevezys last year.

Each Olympic casino follows a different theme: the Olympic casino in Kaunas follows the theme of ancient Egypt, the one in Klaipeda is modelled as a paradise while the Olympic casinos in Vilnius feature the themes of art of ancient theatre, Hawaii, Arabian fairy tales and Antique Greece.

“Our casino in Panevezys is located in the entertainment and trade center Babilonas,” says Jūratė Svaldenienė. “The interior of the casino was designed by the famous Valerijus Starkovskis under the theme of ancient Babylon.”

In the foyer of the new casino visitors are met by a fountain where water ripples from ancient jugs and the walls of the casino are decorated with frescos and drawings that depict ancient legends. The florists have created impressive flower compositions that depict one of the world’s greatest miracles – the suspended gardens of ancient Babylon.
